A true story: you’ve just bought a new snow-white bra, put it on once or twice, and it already starts changing its color to yellow or becomes stained. Clothing fibers, sweat, and deodorant all make the situation even worse. Of course, you might opt for something ivory instead, but if you love a classic look, there are some simple ways to keep your underwear white.
Fortunately, we know how to quickly restore white faded bras, T-shirts, and panties.

Do not forget to protect your hands by wearing rubber gloves!
What you need:
- 2 liters of warm water;
- 2 tbsp. of table salt;
- 3 tbsp. of baking soda;
- 1 tbsp. of detergent.
What to do:
- Dissolve salt, soda and detergent in water.
- Soak the bra for 15 minutes. If the damage is real, you can even leave it there for 30 minutes.
- Then, wash it with your hands. Try to scrub stains as gently as possible. Rubbing stains furiously is a mistake!
- Rinse well in clean water and let it dry. Voilà!
Important! Do not let light clothes dry on the radiator. Most likely, there will be yellow spots that are hard to get rid of.
